A nature corridor connects fragmented ecosystems allowing its resident floral and faunal populations to migrate more easily, thereby increasing their chances of survival.
The Endana Nature Corridor is a reforestation project by Dilmah that hopes to enhance the species richness within our tea estate which borders the Sinharaja Rainforests, a UNESCO designated World Heritage site and Biosphere Reserve, and restore the species diversity of a forest ecosystem fragmented by years of human activity.
The second biological corridor initiated by Dilmah Conservation at Endana will connect 24ha of fragmented forest near the Sinharaja Rainforests.
The Endana nature corridor project aims to reforest 24 hectares of isolated and fragmented forests patches between the Delwalakanda and Walankanda peaks, a small mountain region surrounded by human habitation and tea plantations.
Bordering the globally famed Sinharaja rainforest, a UNESCO designated World Heritage site and Biosphere Reserve, the region shows a high level of endemism and species richness.
This initiative is expected to connect a 3 km long gap between the two forests which had been separated by anthropogenic activities for the past 100 years.
